The Christmas tree downtown

Christmas tree

I took several pictures of the Christmas tree in downtown St. Paul. I missed the tree lighting this year. Christmas was relocated this year. The tree is usually in Rice park but the park is undergoing a major renovation. 

This year’s tree is at Landmark Plaza on St. Peter street which is on the other side of Landmark Center. It wasn’t hard to find. 

It wasn’t until I had taken a bunch of pictures and was halfway home that I noticed my lens was set to manual focus. That would have worked out fine if I had manually focused. \

Usually Rice park lights get turned on after thanksgiving but not this year. They lit it all up last weekend and I missed it. I am just guessing that the tree lighting and fireworks looked just like they did when I took this photo in 2014. The photos I have taken in Rice Park over the years are my most stolen photographs.
